The Role of Radiative Transfer in Models (Lacis)
« on: May 29, 2014, 04:55:50 AM »
Stoat highlights a piece Andy Lacis has written as a comment to Climate etc, of all places. If you are, like me, a non-physicist and approaching climate science (and models) from a background in a different discipline of science you may find it illuminating. At least it made sense to me, and it isn't using too much physics lingo. Funny i've not realized that maths sometimes uses the word 'problem' when it's only a question of error bars.

For more "physical persons" Lacis refers to his own paper which is here
